Troubled Bolton Wanderers forced to close training ground

Bolton Wanderers have been forced to closed their training ground and staff have been told not to come in.

Luckily it was the players’ day off today but ‘peripheral players and staff were informed not to turn up to the location due to lack of food, drink, supplies and diesel for the generator.

Fans are waiting patiently for a takeover of the club with owner Ken Anderson saying that it close to happening.

However nothing has come yet come to fruition and it’s reported that the staff have not been paid their wages for February, which were due last week and now some of them are having to ask around in order to travel to work and eat, according to Sportsmail.

One ‘insider’ said as quoted by the Daily Mail: ‘There are others who are trying to get by and who feel too proud to ask, but the longer this goes on, the harder it is getting for them.’

After they were defeated by Swansea City, which left Bolton seven points from safety in the Championship, Phil Parkinson said: “This is probably the hardest position this club has been in,” he said. “But we have got to keep going, it’s all we can do.

“The powers that be are getting close to a resolution, I’d imagine.

“Let’s just hope that this week there is some positive news for the club, going forward.

“Everybody has had enough of the situation, the uncertainty surrounding the club, and hopefully we get some good news to lift us during the week.”


After learning that Bolton Wanderers had to close their training ground due to lack for food, drink and supplies, fans took to Twitter to reveal their shock at the news as well as criticise the EFL – take a look at what they had to say on the next page.
